New York gun confiscation underway

Well congratulations to all the SSRI-haters, you've given the enemy the ammunition they need to disarm potentially thousands of honest, law abiding gun owners: your paranoia over people going "crazy" on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs is fueling forfeiture of NY Pistol Owner IDs and guns & gun accessories.

Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Remember all those who denied that firearms confiscation as a result of New York’s new gun laws was too “insane” to even consider? There’s just one huge problem it is happening now in New York State! Those folks having their weapons and FID cards confiscated have been discovered to have been prescribed multiple different types of psychotropic drugs, such as those for Depression or Anxiety.

The fact is that neither anti-anxiety nor anti-depression drugs cause anyone to go crazy, the issue is that these drugs are being prescribed to people who are already unbalanced and potentially dangerous. It's only a correlation, not causation.

I take an SSRI to go along with my ADHD meds. Sure, I lived without these pills for 40 years, and can take them or leave them today--but they make my life more pleasant and help me be more productive at work. And I can assure you the effect of alcohol is far more dramatic than the effect of Celexa or Xanax. Well, now, thanks to whacked-out SSRI-haters including many pro-gun people and Daily Paulers, if I lived in New York the state would now seize my guns. Wait for this to show up in a 50-state gun ban for anyone who ever took any drug.

Hope you stupid pill haters are all proud of yourselves for helping disarm innocent people. This is the beginning of the end, caused by fools lashing out, grasping at foolish nonsense, demonizing pharmaceuticals and people who are helped by them, instead of being sensible and merely defending gun rights for all.

Thanks for the advice

I will check into that book. My son did have tubes (3 sets) when he was younger due to repeated ear infections. He doesn't have any balance issues or dyslexia, but he does have anxiety and some phobia type things.

Thanks again!

Does ADHD Really Exist?

Or is it actually the result of the crap they put in the food and water nowadays? High fructose gmo corn syrup can cause symptoms of ADD and ADHD ya know. OCD cases are skyrocketing too. Go figure.


Doesn't really matter what

the cause is though.

I think the increase in ADHD, OCD, Anxiety, Autism, etc. is probably related to something we're eating, drinking, or breathing. I have no proof... just a gut feeling. But regardless of what is causing these symptoms, I am firmly convinced they are real and not all merely cases of "boys being boys" as some would have us believe.

I see a noticeable difference in the behaviors of my two sons. One I can agree is just being a boy, but the other has underlying issues that cause these symptoms.

I hope we (people) figure out the cause of these so we can stop whatever is causing them. Until then, there are treatments that appear to help. Whether or not the treatments have side effects that are worse than the disease remains to be seen... as with most things in modern medicine.

Stupid pill haters? I'm glad

Stupid pill haters? I'm glad you find SSRI's to be helpful in your case. It is not always the case but I will stop short of calling you a stupid pill lover.

Don't Blame Us

It was already in Obamacare a long time ago. Go read it. They had this planned before anyone started griping about it.
